Campaign Story

COVID-19 is hitting everyone hard.

Racing is paused but our work to help combat veteran suicide isn’t.

Since financial pressure is one of the leading causes of suicide, the military community is at even greater risk of suicide now because of COVID-19.

NASCAR driver Colin Garrett can’t currently race to raise awareness of the free suicide prevention services offered by Racing For Heroes. But he can’t just sit still, either, knowing people are hurting.

To keep helping, he’s delivering free hand sanitizer from distilleries to first responders and essential businesses, and Racing For Heroes is taking the orders and organizing his deliveries. That lets us help communities while also continuing to raise awareness of the free suicide prevention services. You can read about it here.

Many first responders are veterans and they now have the added stress of helping people during the pandemic. This is a great opportunity for him to reach them when they may need help the most.

During our first crowdfunding phase, we beat our goal to make it to Daytona and were even able to pay for stem cell treatments for a veteran! With racing on hold, though, we had paused crowdfunding until we know when we can race again.

Due to the number of requests to make contributions to support continuing the National Awareness Campaign during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve agreed to open a campaign for that.

Contributions will help us deliver needed supplies and help Racing For Heroes support veterans who need help.

“This is a force multiplier!
Every $10 given to the crowdfunder is like giving $100
to the nonprofit because of the national exposure we get.”

– Mike Evock, Founder of Racing For Heroes
Retired Special Forces Chief Warrant Officer Three (CW3-180A)

We aren’t offering rewards, though, as we don’t have the supply chain to fulfill them at this time. Your reward will be knowing that you may just help someone find out about free life-saving services before it’s too late.

Thank you for supporting the National Awareness Campaign to help us help Racing For Heroes save the lives of those who have already given so much!

 

 

  • Next up Homestead!

    Colin will be racing our car and a Truck at Homestead-Miami Speedway March 20-21. We have a new veteran-owned business partner joining us on the car for those races and we'll reveal who it is next week!

    Did you know FS1 did a 73-second feature on us during the Daytona practice day? We greatly appreciate FS1 featuring us. And what a cool thing for a small veteran-owned business, The Jewelry Republic, to get 45 seconds screen time.
